The two most important things that you need to get a good night’s sleep in the tropics is: lots of airflow, and protection from biting insects. The Tambo Highwall Screen Dome from Mannagum delivers on both of those factors, has enough room for 6 people, and won’t break the bank.
The inner features No-See-Um mesh walls which will keep even the smallest biting insects out of your shelter, and will provide plenty of cool air so you won’t feel like you’re sleeping in a sauna. You’ve also got two entrances – one on each side for easy access to the tent that have solid door panels options, and four zippered side awnings for some shade. The sturdy PE floor will give you protection from below, and the cross over poles system won’t take an entire village to set up.
With enough space inside for a small family or group, the Tambo Screen Dome is going to perform well when the weather is warm and you want a comfortable night’s sleep in the great outdoors.
Just confirming when you lowering the solid panels for protection from rain they zip close and offer protection like a sleeping type tent?
I would recommend against using the Mannagum Tambo Highwall Screen Dome in the rain as it's not designed for protection again precipitation. Rather, it's purpose is for tropical climates where you're looking for shade, ventilation and a barrier against the bugs.
How many knots will this tent stand up to in the wind?
Unfortunately, Mannagum hasn't had the Tambo Highwall Screen Dome rated against wind speeds so I'm unable to give you an answer on this one.
Hi, can you plase advise how easy this is to set up? Is it a pop up style or do the poles need to be fed each time during set up?
The poles of the Mannagum Tambo Highwall Screen Dome clip in, rather than feed through, but it isn't an 'instant up' style of shelter. The clips make it relatively easy and I'd say you'd be looking at about 10 minutes to peg and clip before being able to erect.
Will the floor stand up to the rigours of a family of 5 using the tent as a dining room? ie. are loaded chair legs likely to go through the floor??
The floor of the Mannagum Tambo Highwall Screen Dome is made with polyethylene which is the same material used in most tent floors.
If using as a dining space, it's very unlikely that chairs will push through the floor unless the bottom of the chairs are sharp enough to cut through the material. What I would recommend being cautious of however is the wear that will take place as furniture is moved around and rubbed against the ground on the other side of the polyethylene.
Does this also protect against rain?
I've just spoken with the supplier and they've said that the fabric on the Tambo Highwall Screen dome has a waterhead rating of 1500mm, so it should offer the same amount of rain protection as your standard dome tent if that helps.
